CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Dec. 14, 2016) - Seair Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SDS) ("Seair") is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement with one of Canada's largest oil and gas producers to conduct a commercial scale pilot of a new patent pending process that utilizes its SWEET™ System in a novel way to improve the overall oil-water separation process, potentially saving chemicals, filtration equipment, energy and related costs for producers. This new process, based on the SWEET™ System could increase the percentage of oil recovered from the produced water at substantially lower cost and increase production capacity. Bench tests and commercial field demonstrations to date have proven the SWEET™ System to be highly effective at improving removal of oil from emulsions that are difficult to separate. Seair believes the new process will enable further improvements that could be of significant value to producers. These pilots will be the first use of the new process at commercial scale.
"We are very pleased to have the opportunity to work with a leading producer to pilot our System in this new patent pending process", says Jeff Seibert, Seair's CEO. "The pilot will commence early in 2017 and run for a 6 week test period, at the end of which we should have results sufficient to quantify the impact of the process on the producer's economics for the well battery. We are excited about the potential to role this process out more broadly with this producer and others. Our research on the processes currently employed by the majority of the industry for oil-water separation indicates that our new patent pending process can be beneficial to thousands of wells in North America and around the world."
